Although the vessels arise differently from those in Man, their distribution is generally similar in a!!. The vertebral artery, accompanied by twigs from the inferior cervical ganglion of the sympathetic, enters the foramen transversarium in the sixth cervical vertebra. The deep cervical artery supplies the muscles of the back of the neck, and anastomoses with a branch of the occipital artery. The ascending cervical artery supplies the muscles of the posterior triangle ; in the Chimpanzee it sends vessels into the first four intervertebral foramina, the lower four receiving spinal branches from the costo-cervical trunk. The long thoracic artery may arise from the subclavian in the Chimpanzee, but does not do so in
